instead of drillkng straight threw the hand i used a tech screw to make the new pivot for the xg door hands but now thanx to a grave intolerance to the consistantly e sam thing to the xg doorreaking handle and being broke not being able to afford genuine for handles ($75) i put rear door handles from the ea eb ed just cut the door skin including door handle from the out side of the eb rear doors and did the same to the xg door and just put sum putty round it to build it up to the same shape as the xg door and its perfect and light as opens with 1 finger
Got any pics mate?
